Only the best quality produce (Herzstück) from the distillation process is used in the making of this Tyrolean Rowanberry Brandy, for only in this so-called inner core or “heart” the natural aromas remain absolutely pure and unadulterated.
The result is a 100% pure, unfiltered distillate of absolute prime quality, which after complete fermentation and double distillation is left to mature cautiously for at least two more years.

"Your genuine Herzstück piece of Tyrol" best releases its fruity aroma when served in tulip-shaped brandy glasses at a drinking temperature of between 16 and 20°C!
In autumn the Tyrolean landscape presents itself as if fitted with shining rubies thanks to the red and powerful shining of the Rowan berries. The ornamental shrubs and trees cover the clearings and fallow lands of the Tyrolean Alps up to the natural tree lines.
The round “berries” – botanically actually a type of apple – ripen from August to October, depending on the altitude. To allow for the harshly bitter parasorbic acid of the fruits to be neutralised, one can only start the collection of the “red gold” after the first frost.
